Charli XCX has admitted 'Blame It On Your Love' "wasn't perfect" until Lizzo jumped on the track.

The 'I Love It' hitmaker revamped the track from her mixtape 'Pop 2', which was known as 'Track 10', for their collaboration on her upcoming third studio album and she has confessed that, without the 'Juice' hitmaker's "energy", the song wouldn't be what it is.

Speaking to Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Charli said: "Until Lizzo was on it, it wasn't perfect.

"She just pulled it together. I mean, her energy is just so amazing."

The 26-year-old star also teased that the song is the most "pop" on her follow-up to 2014 LP 'Sucker'.

She said: "I think this will probably sit on the more pop spectrum of what I'm doing with the record."

The pair recorded the song in Los Angeles and it was produced by Charli's long-time collaborators Stargate with additional production by A. G. Cook and Finn Keane.
